The Golden Phase
Gustav received his highest level of success as an artist, during his “Golden Phase.”

"Lady with Fan"-Gustav Klimt
Gustav wasn't like many of the other artists because he didn't like the typical artist lifestyle.
He didn't travel very much, and he tried to avoid other artists and the "cafe society" as much as possible.
He rarely collaborated with other artists unless it was for a specific piece.
He was very relaxed just working from home while wearing nothing buth a robe and sandals
